Started something new this year. I bought new Vokey SM wedges last year in 52 and 58 degrees, 2 degrees flat, in the nice new Black Nickel finish.
Found they were wearing down somewhat, mostly due to practicing on an 85-yard hole we have that has very sandy soil, and two practice bunkers.
So, I bought another set this year with my initials stamped on them for game action only. The wear on them is significantly reduced.
I won 200 proshop dollars 10 days ago in a member-member best-ball, so I ordered another identical set (with different color initial stamp) that I plan on putting away for a couple of years.
So my suggestion is to keep a set of practice wedges in the trunk of your car and reduce the wear & tear on your game set!
